Re: TD 384 - A Millennial Medley

Argh! While listening to a certain song on the radio last night I realized I errored one character in the singer's name. Serves me right for not waiting until the last moment to submit answers.

Knew it was the science of birds. Completely forgot what the science of birds was called. Went with "zoology" and hoped that would be enough. (I am not giving myself credit.) Same here, although I went with biology. The correct response was rattling around my brain and given another 10 seconds it w...

WAGed Jay Gatsby based just on his connection to New York, 99% sure it would be wrong.

I mistakenly pictured NZ to the SW of Australia instead of the SE and so went with Australia. At least I learned something.

Re: FJs for the 5/21/18 week

Ugh, completely skunked FJ this week! First time that has happened in what, forever? I attribute it to spending about 98% of my brain cycles trying to buy a house.

I have a dim recollection of hearing lumbago once upon a time (perhaps a Three Stooges episode?) but to the best of my knowledge never heard plumbago and would have dismissed it as a nonsense word (along with the psciatica and pscoliosis that I briefly considered). As time drifted away I tried addin...

I struggled mightily with FJ and out of desperation went with Joan Rivers. I knew she had died around the given year, had written at least one book and could conceivably had been an Oscar nom. Very uncomfortable with it though as she is certainly not best known as a writer. I've heard of Nora Ephron...

Re: Wednesday, May 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Figured it was either Lewis or Clark. Meriweather sounded more like someone who would hook up with a Theodosia so I went with Lewis. Never in a million years would I have stumbled on the duel, but hopefully I have that date anchored now.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

The clues rarely include irrelevant words. Not everything is going to be a keyword, but those that aren't are most likely intended to eliminate alternatives or lead in a particular direction.

For Randy's DD I said The Partridge Family. I don't recall the wording of the clue - was there something that leads one to the Monkees instead? Yes, I had to read the FJ clue a few times to grasp what they were shooting for. Briefly considered some sort of "geographic center" but once the light bulb...

I really appreciate clue 605 - I have never seen or heard of several of those creations but will be doing some reading about them now.
